Citizens Climate Lobby
Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) is a growing organization of local volunteer groups in Canada and the U.S. that are pressing for progressive climate legislation. They lobby politicians to support carbon fee and dividend and end subsidies to fossil fuel companies. (Fee and dividend puts a direct fee on carbon-based fuels at the source, providing a market signal to invest in clean energy technology, while returning the fee’s revenue to households in the form of regular payments.)
CCL takes the view that politicians generally do not create political will, rather they respond to it.
CCL's goals are:
- To create the political will for a sustainable climate.
- To empower individuals to have breakthroughs in exercising their personal and political power.
